KB4499162 Windows 10 1703 15063.1839 Cumulative Update 28 May 2019
Following are the key changes that this specific patch includes –
- The release of this cumulative update focuses on the problem with looping redirects between Internet Explorer 11 and Microsoft Edge.
- An update is out for wininet.dll file which will eventually avoid the re-creation of File Transfer Protocol (aka FTP) control sessions.
- Moving ahead, the update also addresses the issue to set the date separator properly. It is applicable in the Japanese short date format.
- Time zone information for Morocco is updated in this patch.
- Moreover, it also includes updates time zone information for the Palestinian Authority.
- In the Universal C Runtime, there is an improvement in the performance related to case-insensitive string comparison functions like _stricmp().
- Microsoft further deals with an issue in which the operating system makes an attempt to renew “Azure Active Directory” (in short AAD) token certificates when there is no internet connection. Now, this problem happens to occur during the authentication of AAD which eventually slows down the performance of applications.
- KB4499162 also addresses a problem that may lead a temporary KRB_AP_ERR_MODIFIED Kerberos sign-in failure in applications. It also happens to services configured to use a Group Managed Service Account (GMSA). This specific issue occurs after the automatic update of the service account password.
- This cumulative update undertakes an issue where the sign in fails with an error “Incorrect Username or password”. It occurs while using an empty or null password. Moreover, it also happens when Windows Defender Credential Guard is turned on.
- You will notice an improvement in the situation that causes Microsoft Office and other applications to prompt for a password. It happens after you modify a user account password and occurs on hybrid Azure Active Directory (AD) joined systems.
- The team addresses a problem with BranchCache when it is in distributed cache mode. It may use more disk space than assigned for the republication cache. So, to completely deal with the issue, the devices that have exceeded the disk space assignments should empty BranchCache. They can do this using the netsh branchcache flush command.
- While dealing with the issues, KB4499162 focuses on the problem that may cause a Stop D1 error. It happens when you increase the random-access memory (RAM) capacity of a CPU (“hot add”) on a virtual machine.
